Butterworms (Chilecomadia moorei) are the larval stage of Chilean moths and are small in size (approximately 0.75” in length) with an orange/yellow-coloured body and very soft skin. Butterworms are healthy feeder insects that provide a nutrition that is rich in calcium and low in fat contents and can easily be supplemented with additional nutritional values, such as vitamins and minerals. These beneficial characteristics make butterworms an ideal food source for various pets, such as reptiles, amphibians, mammals, arachnids, and birds. Their nutritious characteristics, easy maintenance and wide availability at discounted quantities make them an ideal and staple food source throughout the hobby.

Please note that butterworms do not supply sufficient nutritious values to be considered a healthy diet all on their own; they should be considered as being supplemental to your pets’ regular diet in order to properly offer them with enhancing dietary characteristics.

Our butterworms are fed with fresh and healthy nourishments and kept in ideal living conditions to ensure that they arrive to your animal in good health! To maintain your butterworms and maximize their longevity before undergoing transition to their moth stage, it is best to keep them refrigerated, which causes them to go dormant. By doing so, the butterworms will not only survive for much longer, but will also do so without requiring any further kind of maintenance, such as feeding.
